Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

No wonder this place has a 5/5 rating. Par excellence service & amazing food !! We stopped on our way from Auckland to Rotorua & were glad to have opted for this place (by chance, had not gone through any reviews by then). The place...had everything which matters.....quick service with a lovely smile, amazing food !!More

So so yummy! Coffee was good and the breakfast of kumara, potato roti, chili scrambled eggs and salmon with citrus hollandaise sauce was delicious! Friendly staff and good music! What else could you ask for?

Hubby and I stopped into Tucker Bar and Cafe this morning for brunch. I had found them on TripAdvisor, and after reading the positive reviews, we headed in. We were immediately greeted by warm and friendly staff. They invited us to take a seat and...said they would come to take our order. Drinks were ordered and delivered promptly, as were our meals. I had the bacon eggs bene, and hubby had the rosti bacon meal. Both were delicious, especially the citrus hollandaise sauce... so good! Highly recommend this wonderful eatery. Their menu caters to everyone, and we will definitely be back. 5 stars for sure. 🙂More

I had a rice bowel with salmon and it had lots of variety of grains and vegetables and tasted delicious. My husband said the braised tuna was the best he had had since a trip to Japan (and the Japanese really know how to cook,...or not cook, tuna).More

Delicious food and great friendly service at a good price. Would definitely come back again next time. We had a salmon rice bowl and a simple but tasty burger in a brioche bun.
